GDT Has "Incredible Heartache" Over The Hobbit Can't Post

It's been five months since GDT departed The Hobbit, but now that the movie has finally been greenlit and is on schedule for a February 2011 shoot, there's little doubt he still feels the loss of what might have been. ContactMusic caught up with Guillermo and questioned him concerning his quitting The Hobbit, and as the man's said to various people numerous time before, he reiterates that leaving the director's chair was indeed the hardest decision of his life.
It's the hardest decision I've ever taken. I have incredible heartache. I feel terrible about it. It's very hard. It's getting a little easier to talk about it, but essentially it's like you've been recently widowed and everybody (is) asking you how exactly your wife died. It's pretty morbid.

There was no other choice, I kept postponing, I kept fending off the problems, I kept compartmentalising, I kept with it, everything we could (do).

I'll be able to watch it and (I will) probably enjoy it. But you know, with The Hobbit, I feel like the guy (survival mountain climber Aron Ralston) in the real-life experience that Danny Boyle just did his movie (127 Hours about). I was hanging by a thread on my arm for so long that at the end of the day you have to cut it off. Do I like having one arm less? No. But did I have to? Yes.
